Liposuction - what went wrong?

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • You are still very swollen 6 weeks after surgery -
  • It is too early to assess your result.
  • The 'fatty' areas o the belly and hips may be swelling -
  • If they are residual fat, they can be treated once all the swelling is gone.

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting -- REVISION

You likely will need a revision procedure, but I am concerned you have a seroma or scar tissue/irregularities.  For now, please get lymphatic massage, stay in compression, and start venus legacy or exilis ultra treatments with z wave/cellultone.  In 6 weeks evaluate the area and see a VASER 4D revision specialist.  Best, Dr. Emer.
